There is a sense of entitlement that all children have during this festive time. We all have Jolly ol’ Saint Nick to thank for that. Much like the Tooth Fairy, there is a prolific comparison out there amongst the young spirits, when it comes to what magical goods they receive. THIS is where I will make my declaration to my children:
“Santa is mindful too.”
Santa can choose wisely, his lot to give. He can discern what each child should have according to their life, and their way of living it. Santa is careful in making sure he respects the standards of each home and the purpose of his gifts…
To bring joy. Not plenty.
